LiveCD things

	On all LiveCD for Ubuntu when you first boot into the kernel 
on the cd-rom, you have several choices to make. One choice is 
to test the cd-rom for defects.

	My experience has been that my skin grease can block large 
sections of the cd-rom and it stops working. I then wash  the 
cd-rom with dish soap and warm water. Dry off and run the 
cd-rom test. If it passes your good to go.

	Also a regular cd-rom with a Ubuntu version on it can also be 
checked, and used like a liveCD. So if you are careful  you 
can fix your own cd-rom's.
